This chapter deals with the structure, properties, and applications of electrospunbased cellulose composites. Extraction methods of cellulosic nanoﬁbers from different sources are discussed in detail. Cellulose has the special advantage of high speciﬁc strength and sustainability, which make them ideal candidates for reinforcement in various polymeric matrices. Cellulose nanoﬁbers ﬁnd application in various ﬁelds, including construction, the automobile industry, and soil conservation. Cellulose, an eminent representative of nanomaterial obtained from various natural ﬁbers, can be dissolved in various solvent systems, which are described in detail in this study. Thermoplastic-based electrospun cellulose nanocomposites and their applications are highlighted. This chapter describes current and future applications of electrospun cellulosic nanoﬁbers in various ﬁelds.
